look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle Into a tulip

A: deep dark brown with a finger of khaki head that recedes to a film. Not much lacing.

S: a bit more mild of a nose then the 8 which suprised me. Although as it warms a nice caramel and vanilla, a bit of fig, prune and raisin as well. A bit of alcohol as well.

T: a good amount of sweet dark fruit, along with apple, brown sugar, caramel, very well rounded and tasty, the alcohol is very well hidden, very tasty

M: heavy and viscous, low carbonation, rather viscous, works very well here

O: this is just as great as the 6 and the 8, it's hard to pick a favorite they are all so delicious in there own way while all sharing some strong similarities.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 330ml to a Tulip

A- murky brown, 1/2" quickly fading khaki head

S- cotton candy, bubblegum, toffee, caramel, apples, prunes, raisins

T- cotton candy, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, tart apple finish

M- mediun body, crisp carbonation, very slit alcohol heat

O- this just beat Trappistes Rochefort 8. I can't believe this beer is 11.3%, it's to tamed, and the alcohol is almost nonexistant. This thing has all the awesome candy flavors and i want to slap myself for passing on it so many times. I know now that if i'm ever in the mood for a great belgian, i can pick up a 10, and be in bliss.

Poured it into a snifter.

A - dark, dark, dark! Classic characteristic of a Quadruple. Smallish head, no lacing.

S - sweet dark fruits, can smell the octane; but it isn't overpowering.

T - coffee, chocolate, and figs - in that order. Interesting development of flavors. Octane is detected halfway through, but mellows out.

M - nice slight tingle from both carbonation and octane. Leaves a pleasing burn as it travels down the throat.

Overall, beautiful brew. The complexity is overshadowed by the simplicity fashion when it hits the palate. Highly recommend it if you like dark beer.

A big, dark ale with a thick, bubbly head. The nose is of strong dark fruits and some clean alcohol mixed with esters and a subtle smokey phenolic character. The taste is similar, this particular bottle has a stronger alcohol burn than previous bottles I had. Carbonation pop up front with a nice dark raisiny malt to follow with phenolic fruit and esters, touch of smoke, some peppery yeast, and as it finishes some sweet pilsner malt comes in. The mouthfeel is crisp on the front and drying on the back.

Overall, this is an exceptional beer, one of the best Quads out there. Maybe a little expensive, afterall I could get a 750ml bottle of Chimay Grand Reserve for a dollar more where I live, but it is well-deserved of its praise.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a tulip

A- pours a murky reddish brown, fluffy two finger off-white head appears and slowly dissipates down to a half finger fluffy covering, spotty to little lacing

S- belgian yeast, dark fruits, candi sugar, raisins, bready malt

T- really intense flavor, the dark fruits really take over, figs and raisins, candi sugar adds a lot of sweetness, pretty much what a quad should taste like

M- medium to heavy body, fairly high carbonation, the alcohol cinges the palate slightly

O- I think this is a real solid quad, not the best I've ever had but can't complain about too much, flavor is there, nothing offending in appearance or consistency, I'd buy again

330ml bottle into goblet.

A - Dark muddy brown with a small off-white head.

S - Lots of dark fruit; plum, grape, raisin, molasses, and brown sugar. Vinous and sweet.

T - Bold and delicious. Sweet plum, black cherry, grape, and caramel throughout. Spicy alcohol and yeast is evident, but not overpowering. The finish is bready and earthy with hints of pepper, clove and brown sugar.

M - Silky and creamy. Medium-full bodied with tingly carbonation. Slightly dry with warming alcohol.

O - A truly excellent Belgian quad. Great balance and complexity. Let this one warm up a little, it gets much better as it reaches room temperature. This is my favorite Rochefort offering, and it deserves its reputation as one of the best beers in the world.
